…And equally violent intrusion on elderly couple in Hattieville

Story PictureStill there is another home invasion, but this one ended in rape of a retired woman in a secluded area of Hattieville. A Canadian woman and her husband living for some time in the Freetown Sibun Area of the village, was the victim of the horrible sexual crime. The incident happened around two on Monday morning when the couple was awoken by a sound in the bathroom. When the husband checked, he saw the intruder dressed in dark clothes, wearing a mask and brandishing a firearm. The thief overpowered the husband and wife, tied them up in the bedroom and raped the sixty year old woman. The intruder stole an assortment of electrical household and personal items and got away in a red Chevy Blazer parked in the yard. Police are withholding the name of the victim and believe that the thief knew the couple.

Sgt. Peter Serrano, O.C., Hattieville Police
“Some time yesterday morning, I would say some time about four, police received information of a home invasion in the Freetown Sibun Area. We visited the area where a couple was seen in the house. A single person entered their home and stole quite a number of items from their home. He was in possession of a firearm.”

No one has been detained but police are looking for one suspect.
